E! ENTERTAINMENT NEW SERIES STARRING PAULY D

DJ Pauly D



Los Angeles, CA –  Dating is hard enough, but dating as a celebrity? Nearly impossible – until now. E! Entertainment exposes the fascinating romantic lives of Hollywood’s most notorious daters when “Famously Single” premieres on Tuesday, June 14 at 10/9c. In the all-new series, eight celebrities going through relationship rehab live under one roof in downtown Los Angeles and explore their romantic issues together. Through fun challenges and exercises their fame is stripped away and viewer’s will witness them untangle their most private emotional experiences, ripped straight out of tabloid headlines.


Of all the privileges that come with fame and fortune, the guarantee of finding true love is not one of them. Throughout the season the celebrities will be tasked with unique yet entertaining exercises led by relationship expert Dr. Darcy Sterling. With 20 years of experience Dr. Darcy has seen and heard it all, and she will guide the stars through this intense process in individual and group examinations of love in the limelight.


Forced to be proactive with dating, the group finds themselves looking for love in clubs, bars, tourist hot spots and even within themselves. Something that could have never been predicted happens, feelings evolve quicker than anyone anticipated and romantic connections transpire within the house.


The cast describes their love woes:


Pauly D is an internationally celebrated DJ, but is still known best for his semantics on “Jersey Shore.” He affirms, “I have a reputation as being a ladies man, hooking up with all of these girls. But I am looking for that one to share all this stuff with. Everyone told me don’t look, the girl is supposed to come, but she hasn’t come so I have to be doing something wrong.”


Brandi Glanville is best known as the former troublemaker from “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” Recently recovering from a divorce from her husband of 13 years, she reflects, “I’m single because I tend to sabotage relationships when I get even the smallest amount of suspicion. Only a small percentile of men can actually keep it in their pants.”


Willis McGahee is a former NFL player sick of tackling romance rumors. In addition to his 10 years of professional football under his belt, he has eight kids with seven different women. He shares, “When a relationship ends it’s normally because I have cheated in the past. The past catches up with you. Being in the NFL, women constantly make moves on you.”


Aubrey O’Day is a platinum selling artist from “Making the Band” and Danity Kane. She states, “I’m hitting foul balls from left to right. I have no idea how to find love, I notice all of the red flags in relationships then in the very end I’m like WTF, I already knew this was going to end like this, why did I do this to myself?”


Josh Murray unfortunately did not find love even after winning “The Bachelorette.” He reveals, “I haven’t been in a lot of relationships, it’s been for my entire life since high school. So I’m pretty picky.”


Jessica White is a supermodel that has graced the pages of Sports Illustrated, GQ and Vogue, and has dawned the infamous wings of a Victoria’s Secret angel. A self-proclaimed gypsy, who has dated many high profile men declares, “I have a two year commitment phobia and I call it the two year itch. And after two years I will pack my bags and get the f*ck out of there.”


Calum Best is a London-based TV personality, entrepreneur and model. Looking to ditch the wild girls, he admits, “For years I was known as a bit of a playboy, after a while the reputation got a bit out of hand. I didn’t like that reputation anymore, as I got older. Now I’m looking for a serious relationship.”


Somaya Reece is a fabulous Latin music artist from VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” who made headlines getting caught in a web of women involved with the same man. She explains, “It’s hard dating in general but once you reach celebrity, child, it’s even harder.”


“Famously Single” is produced by Irwin Entertainment with John Irwin, Damian Sullivan, and Alex Weresow serving as Executive Producers and Casey Spira and Krista Chael as Co-Executive Producers.


Being famous isn’t easy. Finding love as famously single is even harder. “Famously Single” premieres Tuesday, June 14 at 10/9c on E! Entertainment.

JENNIFER GARNER ACCEPTS BAD THINGS HAPPEN

Jennifer Garner



E! News -- Jennifer Garner accepts that bad things happen to good people.


In her new movie, Miracles From Heaven, she plays Christy Beam, the real-life mom of a 10-year-old girl named Anna who was diagnosed with a fatal and incurable digestive disease. At one point in the film, Christy loses faith in God and stops going to church.


In the end, Anna is suddenly cured after she says she spoke to God during a freak accident left her unharmed after falling three stories to the bottom of a hollow tree.


Garner, herself, has never lost faith.


"You can't expect the world just to be good," Garner told me this weekend while promoting the movie. "You can't have faith if only good things are happening in the world. That's the whole point. You have to dig deeper to rely on something."


She explained further, "The world is a complicated place…The world is full of extreme views and complications and it's driven by all kinds of things out of our control."


Miracles From Heaven has inspired Garner to attend church services with her and Ben Affleck's three kids like she did when she was growing up in West Virginia.


"I hadn't been participating in giving them some kind of ground under them in the way that my parents had done for me,' she said. "I just expected them to have it because I do."


One thing she won 't be doing in front of the kids—cursing. A video of Garner reading Go the F--k to Sleep during her photo shoot for Vanity Fair recently went viral.


She said she hopes the kids "never" see the video. "That would not be OK with me," Garner said.


But then she admitted, "I can go through phases in life where I have a potty mouth but then I clean it back up because I really don't like to hear it so much."


Miracles From Heaven is in theaters on March 16.


Garner also weighed in the possibility of an Alias reunion. Click the video to below to hear what she had to say.

Madame Tussauds Hollywood unveiled today GRAMMY winning singer-songwriter, Lorde. Lorde was an enthusiastic participant in the creation of her first wax figure, spending time with a team of Madame Tussauds studio artists who took over 200 precise measurements to ensure the figure fully captured her style, eye color, posture, signature hair and more. Lorde’s figure dons a Stella McCartney inspired suit similar to the look she wore to the 2015 Golden Globes.

DEPRESSION CAUSES FAMED ROBIN WILLIAMS SUICIDE

****
DEATH OF A LEGEND

Story By: James Edstrom
****

Robin Williams Suicide At Age 63




Robin Williams today at 63. While his publicist wouldn’t confirm that it was a suicide, they did issue this statement. “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”


Marin County Coronor’s office issued a statement, the Sheriff’s office suspects the death to be “suicide due to asphyxia.” The 9-1-1 phone call came in just before noon today.


This is very sad. Robin Williams was one of the first stars I photographed. I remember that day so clearly. I was on the side streets of Lincoln Center when Robin came walking down the street. He was smiling, laughing and made jokes. He asked what pose would we like and did everything we asked. As he walked down the street, he waved and you felt like you met a class act and a friend. 


For many years I would be asked on TV interviews who was one of the best to photograph and I always mentioned how nice Robin was. Any event that Robin attended, he was always on top of his game, class, dignity and treated you with respect.  This is a very sad day, Robin Williams was a huge talent who made us laugh for many years. Rest in peace Robin!

FAMED HOLLYWOOD KATE MANTILINI'S CLOSES DOORS

****
THE GLORIOUS CORNER

Story By: G. H. HARDING
****

Mel Brooks



KATE’S CLOSED --- From Deadline, “It not only was perhaps the most consistently popular and cool restaurant in Beverly Hills, Kate Mantilini which is located at the corner of Wilshire Blvd and Doheny and just two blocks from the headquarters of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, has in recent years become a key part of Oscar campaigning. Sadly, due to a dispute over higher rent with a greedy landlord more interested in lining their pockets than in pleasing Hollywood, Kate’s closed its doors Saturday night after 27 years in the key BH location. The other Kate’s located in Woodland Hills remains open, but frankly it isn’t the same. This one was special.”



"The restaurant, founded in 1987 and owned by the Lewis family (Marilyn and Harry who also founded the famed Hamburger Hamlet chain and sons David, and Adam who has been running it since 2010) which is open late unlike just about every other place of its type in the area, became a real watering hole for many Hollywood types like Mel Brooks who has written his own obit for the place, and so many others. It was almost impossible to go in there and not run into someone you know. It was really a hopping place, both at lunch , dinner and late night. And it not only has been host to numerous premiere parties (including several for Matt Weiner and Mad Men, a Marilyn Lewis obsession) it was also prominently featured in the movie Heat with a key scene between stars Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, now memorialized on the walls of Kate’s.”



When I used to be in L. A. on a more regular basis, Kate’s was usually my first stop. Its food was great all around, especially their tortilla soup and mac and cheese concoctions. Along with the now-closed Chasen’s, and Dan Tana’s, and, now Craig’s … this was southern-L. A. dining at its best. Sad news indeed.



GOD AWARDS LAND FRIDAY IN NYC --- We Care for Humanity awarded Nancy Rivard, Founder of Airline Ambassadors International, Global Woman of the Year at the 1st GOD Awards at L.A.'s Academy of Television Arts & Sciences last June. 



This Friday, the 2nd Annual Global Officials of Dignity Awards (GOD Awards) will honor individuals and corporations who have made substantive contributions to local communities in the fields of Business, Philanthropy, Arts and Entertainment, and to be held at the United Nations in New York City. Miss Universe 2011, Leila Lopes and Rebecca Holden (TV's Knight Rider) and music-producer Joel Diamond will act as co-hosts at the event and Rebecca and Tony LeBron will perform their hit song, “Dreams Come True.”



American Airlines will receive recognition for their Miles for Kids in Need Program; Delta Air Lines and Silver Airways will be acknowledged for Human Trafficking awareness: and Southwest and Virgin Atlantic will be honored for Humanitarian and Sustainability programs.



“Airline Ambassadors is proud to partner with We Care for Humanity, and highlight leaders in the airline industry who are modeling corporate social responsibility and building global cooperation, understanding and goodwill,” said Nancy Rivard.



D'ONOFRIO CAST --- Vincent D’Onofrio, so good for so many years at Detective Robert Goren in Law & Order/Criminal Intent, has signed on to play the Kingpin in the new Netflix's live-action TV series Daredevil.



Last week, Marvel announced that D'Onofrio, will play Michael Fisk, aka Kingpin, the arch nemesis of Daredevil.



Marvel and Netflix's Daredevil is one part of the companies' long-term business venture into the live-action realm of superhero TV shows. D'Onofrio is bringing with him a large body of past respected work that could propel the series and the character of Fisk even more. 



Now that D'Onofiro has been cast as Fisk, along with Charlie Cox in the title role of the series, the future of the man without fear appears to be looking bright.



CLOSING NOTES --- The sad story of legendary Casey Kasem officially came to an end yesterday, on Father’s Day, as he passed. So much mis-information came from this case, a book and maybe movie must certainly be the next logical step.



In his goodbye to radio fans in 2009, Kasem said, "Success doesn't happen in a vacuum. You're only as good as the people you work with and the people you work for. I've been lucky; I've worked for and with the very best."



Radio's All Access publisher Joel Denver noted, "Casey’s death marks the passing of one of the truly innovative radio personalities of our time. He brought to life the magic of American Top 40 to millions for years, and with that show, he created an indelible and beautiful spotlight on the importance of music and radio for generations of listeners. I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Casey when we both recorded our respective shows and he was always a gentleman, who had a big and caring heart. Rest in peace, Casey."



Classy move by Elton John dedicating "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me" at this weekend's Bonnaroo festival. Elton closed the festival.



Yes it really happened: While Hillary Clinton was at a book signing at a Costco in Virginia on Saturday (for her just-released book Hard Choices), who should wandered in, but Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor … in sandals and a striped shorts. So, I guess even Supreme Court Justices have normal lives …


Donnie Kehr




Jersey Boy's Donnie Kehr (and, his dog Buddy Elliot) showed at the Heads And Tails salon benefit Saturday. The afternoon also benefited Bideawee.

NEW YORK CITY LEGEND MICKEY ROONEY DEAD AT 93

Mickey Rooney



Movie legend Mickey Rooney, who appeared in more than 300 films and TV programs, has died at 93.


Having photographed Rooney over the years, we loved this guy. He always posed and always made you laugh while you were snapping his photo. The Brooklyn born actor loved New York City, and i was always amazed how he walked down Broadway like he owned the street. He love the Great White Way. Rooney was a gentleman, he had that old Hollywood style and class, that is so rare these days with the new generation of stars. Rooney will be missed.



Mickey Rooney's Biography



Mickey Rooney was born Joe Yule Jr. on September 23, 1920 in Brooklyn, New York. He first took the stage as a toddler in his parents vaudeville act at 17 months old. He made his first film appearance in 1926. The following year, he played the lead character in the first Mickey McGuire short film. It was in this popular film series that he took the stage name Mickey Rooney. Rooney reached new heights in 1937 with A Family Affair, the film that introduced the country to Andy Hardy, the popular all-American teenager. This beloved character appeared in nearly 20 films and helped make Rooney the top star at the box office in 1939, 1940 and 1941. Rooney also proved himself an excellent dramatic actor as a delinquent in Boys Town starring Spencer Tracy. In 1938, he was awarded a Juvenile Academy Award.



Teaming up with Judy Garland, Rooney also appeared in a string of musicals, including Babes in Arms (1939) the first teenager to be nominated for an Oscar in a leading role, Strike up the Band (1940), Babes on Broadway (1941), and Girl Crazy (1943). He and Garland immediately became best of friends. "We weren't just a team, we were magic," Rooney once said. During that time he also appeared with Elizabeth Taylor in the now classic National Velvet (1944). Rooney joined the service that same year, where he helped to entertain the troops and worked on the American Armed Forces Network. He returned to Hollywood after 21 months in Love Laughs at Andy Hardy (1946), did a remake of a Robert Taylor film, The Crowd Roars called Killer McCoy (1947) and portrayed composer Lorenz Hart in Words and Music (1948). He also appeared in Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard. Rooney played Hepburn's Japanese neighbor, Mr. Yunioshi. A sign of the times, Rooney played the part for comic relief which he later regretted feeling the role was offensive. He once again showed his incredible range in the dramatic role of a boxing trainer with Anthony Quinn and Jackie Gleason in Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962). In the late 1960s and 1970s Rooney showed audiences and critics alike why he was one of Hollywood's most enduring stars. He gave an impressive performance in Francis Ford Coppola's 1979 film The Black Stallion (1979), which brought him an Academy Award nomination as Best Supporting Actor. He also turned to the stage in 1979 in Sugar Babies with Ann Miller, and was nominated for a Tony Award. During that time he also portrayed the Wizard in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz with Eartha Kitt at New York's Madison Square Garden, which also had a successful run nationally.
